COLLEGE OF VETERINARY MEDICINE
The College of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Illinois was
established in 1944. A professional four-year course leading to the
Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.) degree was established in 1948,
and the first class of the College was graduated in 1952. The College
was advanced from an undergraduate to a professional status in 1957.
Although one of the newer colleges of the University of Illinois,
Veterinary Medicine is not a newcomer from the standpoint of tradition.
A course in veterinary science was taught at the University as early as
1870, three years after the institution was chartered as the Illinois Indus-
trial University. In 1899, a Department of Veterinary Science was estab-
lished in the College of Agriculture. This department was replaced by
the Division of Pathology and Hygiene in 1917. Two years later, a
building on south campus was remodeled and designated as the Animal
Pathology Laboratory and Clinic Building.
In 1927, a part-time program of extension teaching was formally
organized and emphasis was placed on disease prevention by proper
sanitation, herd and flock management, laboratory aids in diagnosis, and
the prevention and control of infectious abortion in cattle and swine.
Four years later, the Illinois State Department of Agriculture began
cooperating with the Division of Animal Pathology and Hygiene to
provide expanded diagnostic service for the entire animal population
of the state. This arrangement between the State Department of Agri-
culture and the College of Veterinary Medicine continues to afford its
In 1940, the Division of Animal Pathology and Hygiene became a
Department in the College of Agriculture. This unit was made one of
the four departments of the College of Veterinary Medicine in 1944.
A major objective of the College of Veterinary Medicine is to im-
prove the means of combating livestock diseases on Illinois farms. The
prevention and control of diseases of all species of animals, including
those common to man and others of the animal kingdom, is, nevertheless,
the responsibility and obligation of the College. This objective is accom-
plished, in part, by thorough, intensive training of qualified students in
the science and art of veterinary medicine. Of growing importance is
the role of the veterinarian in public health. Involved are many phases,
e.g., inspection and control of food quality and wholesomeness to regu-
lation of animal transport, import, export, quarantine, testing and re-
search on the zoonoses — the diseases transmissible between human
beings and others of the animal kingdom. The health of pet, zoo, and
wild animals is also a large obligation of the veterinarian. Three major
activities — teaching, public service, and research — serve in the fulfill-
ment of these objectives by the College.
Teaching is of two kinds — resident and extension. Resident teach-
ing is at the undergraduate, professional, and graduate levels. Extension
teaching is carried on largely in rural communities but reaches into
urban areas as well. It includes on-campus meetings, conferences, and
The service program incorporates the important functions of disease
detection, diagnosis, and control. Many take advantage of the services
provided by the large and small animal clinics, the diagnostic laboratory,
and the ambulatory service. Operation of these services provides essen-
tial teaching patients and experience for students.
Research toward better means and methods of overcoming the risks
and ravages of diseases is a vital function of the College. Many of the
College's research projects are concerned with serious communicable
diseases including the zoonoses such as leptospirosis, Q fever, parasitisms,
and rabies. Investigations are also conducted on noninfectious diseases —
nutritional, toxic, and hereditary.
The College occupies several buildings and areas including the
veterinary medical basic sciences unit located on Pennsylvania Avenue.
The four-story, modern, brick building provides offices, laboratories, and
classrooms essential for teaching and research.
The veterinary medical students have access to the excellent Uni-
versity library and to other college libraries on the campus in addition
to their own library located on the second floor of the Veterinary Med-
icine Building. The veterinary medical library contains approximately
ten thousand volumes covering the broad area which constitutes veter-
inary medicine and related subjects.
An annex or wing for diagnostic and research work joins the main
The Large Animal Clinic is located on Maryland Avenue south of
the basic science unit. Completed in October, 1955, it is designed to
accommodate forty-two large animal patients. The Clinic has modern
surgery and X-ray facilities, pharmacy, recovery rooms, decontamina-
tion facilities, and feed and equipment storage room. To the west is an
enclosed service and exercise court.
The Small Animal Clinic will remain in the old Veterinary Clinic
building, located at Sixth Street and Taft Drive, until new small animal
facilities are constructed. These facilities will join the Large Animal
The new, maximal security Veterinary Medical Research Building
at Florida Avenue and Virginia Drive was completed in 1961 with
support of federal, private, and University funds. The unit provides
necessary facilities for the greatly expanding research program on non-
infectious as well as infectious diseases. An early addition to the research
and diagnostic annex of the main building will afford essential new
facilities. Important veterinary medical research is also conducted in
the Department of Veterinary Research of the Agricultural Experiment
Station. Available for it are the research farm facilities on South Race
Street, four miles from the College.
A minimum of sixty semester hours of preveterinary medical in-
struction is required for admission to the College. Preveterinary medical
students may register in the College of Agriculture or the College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences. Equivalent preveterinary instruction may be
taken at other accredited institutions. Preveterinary medical training
does not automatically guarantee admission to the College, however.
Applicants for admission to the College must present not less than
sixty semester hours of acceptable credit from a recognized college or
university. Hours earned in military training or physical education are
not counted in this total. The minimal acceptable grade point average
is 3.5. In the University of Illinois system, 3.5 is midway between B and
C. The sixty semester hours must be distributed as follows:
Chemistry (including organic and quantitative analysis) 16
Biological Science (botany and general zoology) 8
Physics (including laboratory) 8
Foreign Language 1 6
English Composition and Rhetoric 6
Electives in not less than two of the following fields: economics (including agricultural
economics), fine arts, language, geography, history, literature, philosophy, political
science, psychology, sociology, speech. Approximately one-half of these credits
must be in the following fields: anthropology, economics, geography, history,
political science, psychology, or sociology 9
Free Electives 7
1 One year of a foreign language at the college level or three years of a foreign
language from an accredited high school. Students with two years of credit in
a foreign language may take the University of Illinois proficiency examinations
in the same language. Passing these examinations satisfies the requirement of
one year (6 hours) of college language courses.
Proficiency in the use of written English is required. Students who
receive grades of C or D in Rhetoric 102 or its equivalent are required
to pass an English qualifying examination. Those who fail to pass the
examination are required to complete an extra semester course in rhetoric
Limitation of enrollment of students in the professional College
curriculum is mandatory because of limited facilities. In selecting stu-
dents for admission, scholarship in preveterinary medical subjects and
character references are considered. Aptitude testing, general and pro-
fessional, together with personal interviews, also serves in the careful
screening of students. Preference is given to residents of Illinois and to
Illinois service veterans.
Information regarding admission requirements may be obtained by
writing to the Dean of Admissions and Records, 100a Administration
Building, University of Illinois, Urbana, Illinois.
Applications for admission to the school year which begins in Sep-
tember should be submitted to the Dean of Admissions and Records not
later than April. A fee of $30 must accompany the admission application.
It will be applied to tuition and fees for the first semester or returned
if the student is not accepted for entry.

The first two years in the College of Veterinary Medicine are devoted
largely to basic professional subjects such as anatomy, biochemistry,
physiology, bacteriology, pathology, parasitology, and pharmacology.
These courses are the foundation for the applied work of the final two
years. In addition to the basic courses, selected courses are required in
animal science and dairy science.
The third year represents a transitional stage in the training of the
professional student. The courses are of scmiapplied and applied nature
and I nun a bridge; between the fundamental work of the first two years
and the clinical work of the fourth year. The courses of the final two
yean include pharmacology, general and special surgery, diseases of
small animals, diseases of large animals, breeding problems and obstetrics,
public health, and clinical and laboratory practice.
The major portion of the instruction in the fourth year is in labora-
tory and clinical practice. It affords the students ample opportunity to
apply knowledge gained in the classroom and laboratory to the diagnosis,
treatment, and prevention of animal diseases. Courses in radiology,
diseases of poultry, infectious diseases of large animals, food hygiene and
public health, jurisprudence, business methods and ethics, clinical
pathology conference, and seminar complete the period of formal edu-
The third- and fourth-year classes are divided into groups with
rotating assignments in the various clinical services. The fourth-year
class spends two days at the Dixon Springs Agricultural Experiment Sta-
tion at Robbs, Illinois, where the students participate in the fall roundup
and gain valuable experience in the handling, examination, and treat-
ment of disease in range cattle. During the spring semester, the third-
and fourth-year classes take field trips to selected packing and food
and dairy processing plants in the Chicago and other areas. In addition,
they are afforded practical observations of and contact with public health
agencies and their programs; with the activities of the biological and
pharmaceutical industry; with zoological gardens and animal colonies;
and with industrial, University, and other research programs.

Students who have passed all courses in the first two years of the
veterinary medical curriculum and who have a grade-point average of
3.0 or better for these courses are eligible for the degree of Bachelor of
Science in Veterinary Medicine.
Students who have passed all courses in the veterinary medical cur-
riculum and who have a grade-point average of 3.0 or better for these
courses are eligible for the degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine.
Grade designations are A, B, C, D, and E. D is the lowest passing
grade and E is failure. The computation of individual averages is as
follows: A = 5 points; B = 4; C = 3; D = 2; and E = 1. The credit
points for a course are computed by multiplying the credit hours by the
credit points of the letter grade.

and for teaching.
STUDENT HEALTH SERVICE
The Health Service of the University provides routine clinical, labora-
tory, and X-ray services for all students. Consultation is available on
personal matters of a medical nature and on dental and psychiatric
In addition, students are eligible for admission and may receive
services as outpatients at McKinley Hospital, which operates on the
campus under the Health Service. Hospitalization for students is covered
by student insurance. A Health Service physician is in residence at the
hospital after the regular hours of the Health Center. He provides emer-
gency service and admits patients to the hospital if they have not been
seen by a private physician prior to admission.
Many students work part time while attending school. Because of the
large number of classroom hours required of veterinary medical students,
however, it is recommended that outside work be kept at a minimum.
Some veterinary medical students are employed on the College's re-
search projects as technicians, assistants, and animal caretakers, and in
other University departments as laboratory assistants. Such work offers
both income and valuable experience to the prospective veterinarian.
Other students find board or board-and-room employment. The Student
Employment Office, a division of the Dean of Students' Office, provides
information and assistance to the student who seeks part-time work.
The Housing Division offers current information on all types of
accomodations for undergraduate, graduate, married, and single students.
It issues application forms for space in University-operated residence
halls, provides lists of rooms available in other approved residences, and
supervises standards of safety, health, comfort, and study conditions in
housing units in which undergraduate and professional men and women
Students are requested to contact the Housing Division by mail or in
person immediately after applying for admission to the University. They
will then receive copies of the Handbook of Student Housing, lists of
current vacancies, area maps, etc., and will be given definite instructions
on how to apply for space in the particular type of unit in which they
are interested and which will best serve their individual needs.
STUDENT CHAPTER OF THE AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION
A center of student activities in the College of Veterinary Medicine
is the student chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association.
Similar organizations are found at all recognized veterinary schools and
colleges in the United States and Canada.
Activities of the student chapter at Illinois include social gatherings,
sponsorship of the Preveterinary Medical Student Club, the annual wel-
come to first-year students, alumni dance, student-staff spring picnic, and
spring dinner-dance. Guest speakers on many phases of veterinary medi-
cine and on other subjects appear on semimonthly programs. The
chapter sponsors intramural athletic teams such as basketball, football,
softball, and bowling.
OMEGA TAU SIGMA
The National Fraternity established Theta Chapter on the campus in
1956. The purpose of this organization is to develop broadly educated,
public spirited veterinarians.
Membership is open to any member of the student body of the
College. The organization functions efficiently to provide effective rela-
tionships outside the classroom, including group participation in educa-
tional and social gatherings.
VETERINARY MEDICINE BUILDING
Graduates of the College have formed the University of Illinois
Veterinary Medical Alumni Association. The Association is designed to
create broader professional acquaintance among its members, to afford
opportunity for increasing professional knowledge, to maintain mutually
beneficial contact with the College, and to counsel with the student body
WOMEN'S AUXILIARY OF THE STUDENT CHAPTER
OF THE AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION
The Auxiliary of the Illinois student chapter is open to wives of
veterinary medical students. The Auxiliary meets monthly in the audito-
rium of the Veterinary Medicine Building to hear guest speakers on topics
related to the veterinary medical profession as well as other topics. Also,
the group sponsors social events such as the wives' banquet for husbands,
a farewell party for wives, and other activities.
Athletic facilities at the University include Memorial Stadium, which
seats 71,000 and serves for football games and track meets. The new
Assembly Hall, to be completed by 1963, provides excellent facilities for
athletic events, concerts, and other large group gatherings. The Armory,
with its cinder track and nets suspended from the ceiling, permits in addi-
tion to the Reserve Officers' Training Program activities, indoor track
meets and early season baseball practice. Illinois Field has freshman and
varsity baseball diamonds, a quarter-mile track, and tennis courts. The
Ice Skating Rink serves for recreational skating and physical education
The Illini Union student activities organization is in charge of many
activities in the Illini Union Building and of all-campus activities at
Urbana-Champaign, such as Homecoming, Dad's Day, Mother's Day, etc.
The Illini Union Building has lounges, food services, meeting and game
rooms, browsing library, ticket sales and information desks, and other
OPPORTUNITIES FOR VETERINARIANS
A wide horizon of endeavor and service awaits the graduate in
veterinary medicine. Although 60 per cent of all our country's vet-
erinarians are engaged in some kind of practice, there are many other
opportunities for contributions through public service, in teaching and
research, in public health, in regulatory endeavor at the national, state,
and local levels, as well as inspection activities, food sanitation, and
related undertakings. The needs and opportunities for graduate vet-
erinarians are growing in several phases of teaching, including extension,
and in research. Industry depends on veterinary medical skill for the
production of biological and pharmaceutical products, in its education
and sales efforts, and for field service.
The United States Department of Agriculture maintains a full-time
staff of about 1,500 veterinarians whose principal assignments are the
inspection for wholesomeness and safety of the meat processed in fed-
erally inspected packing plants and at ports; field work in animal disease
detection, suppression, and eradication forms another segment. By in-
specting animals before, at the time of, and after slaughter, as well as
during processing operations, veterinarians detect and exclude unsafe
meat and meat products.
Other opportunities in the Department of Agriculture include stock-
yards supervision, poultry inspection, enforcement of import and export
regulations, research on animal health problems, and licensing and super-
vision of the manufacture of serums and vaccines for animals.
I In- Army and Air Force also require a substantial number of vet-
erinarians fol the inspection of foods, especially meat and dairy products
(to prevenl unwholesome or poor-quality foods from being served to
troops), and lot diagnosis and research, including many new and impor-
tant phases < >f space medicine. Other agencies dial, engage the coiii-
petence of veterinarians are the United States Public Health Service and
the Food and Drug Administration. United States veterinarians also
serve with international agencies such as the World Health Organization
and the Pan-American Health Organization.
Many states and municipalities employ veterinarians for disease
control and eradication work. These veterinarians cooperate with
federal and local as well as private practitioners, and with public health
veterinarians in testing and diagnosis, in environmental sanitation of
packing houses and food establishments, and in the control of meat, milk,
and other animal food products.
Rapid developments in the nuclear sciences have created problems
of contamination by radio-active fallout. The public has been alerted to
the need for veterinary medical aid in reducing the danger of exposure
of food-producing animals and contamination of meat and milk. Vet-
erinarians are informed in the ways of protecting animals against these
hazards and safeguarding this important segment of our food and econ-
Other opportunities involve keeping healthy the animals in zoos and
public parks, racing stables, animal colonies for medical and veterinary
medical research, fur farms, circuses, ranches, and humane society
